How to find free driving record services online
Since you’re here, that means you’re probably trying to obtain your driving record for free on the web. Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you. It isn’t going to happen. Do not allow yourself to get ripped off by a service promising free driving records online. They are either trying to obtain your sensitive information as part of a scam or will “bait and switch” when it comes time to actually order your “free” record.
Nearly every state charges a fee now for driving record reports. So why in the world would somebody buy the report then give it to you for free? I hate to be the bad news messenger, but that’s the unfortunate truth!

So below these instructions, I’ll provide you with a way to get your driving record online for pretty cheap and save you lots of hassle. You won’t even need to leave the house.

It’s unfortunate, but most state no longer allow you to obtain a free driving record anymore. You have to pay some sort of “service fee” or as they sometimes like to call it, a “convenience fee.” Convenience fee? Sure, like going to the DMV is convenient. But I digress.
If they charge, it can be anywhere from a few bucks to $50 or more, depending on how detailed you want the report to be. But most states are in the $10 to $20 range.
